Two words: Wayne Bridge

II. 2004-05 Premier League at Highbury
Arsenal 2-2 Chelsea

The Special One's first encounter with The Voyeur. This one sounded our intent, Terry cancelling out the brilliance of Henry. Couldn't find any highlights, so this promo for the Dec. 12 04 match will have to do. You know, it ain't half bad.

III. 2007 Carling Cup Final
Chelsea 2-1 Arsenal

The Snarling Cup, as it became known, was by no means a dull affair. It was equal parts thrilling, entertaining and bad-tempered. This one will forever be marred by the stoppage-time fisticuffs, which led to the dismissal of John Obi-Mikel, Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor. England's Brave John Terry also took a blow, a swift boot to the head from Abou Diaby rendering him unconscious.

IV. 2008-09 Premier League at Emirates Stadium
Arsenal 1-4 Chelsea

Days after Champions League injustice, Chelsea showed its true mettle in this demolition. Guus Hiddink's legend as Blues manager may have already been solidfied before this fixture, but this beautiful result certainly did not hurt.
